NRA CountrySince he has a red beard and fair complexion, Eric Paslay is embracing his role as country music’s resident leprechaun. The title even helps him book gigs.

Eric says, “I know that I got booked a long time in advance for a St. Patty’s Day show since I’ve started joking about being a giant leprechaun.”

Eric really played up his Irish looks at a recent Halloween show. He discovered a giant, eight-foot guitar backstage before the concert at one of Toby Keith’s Bar & Grill restaurants.

“I went and ran out and bought a giant green top hat and came out on stage with that giant guitar, and I looked like a leprechaun,” Eric says. “So, maybe I’ll have to do that on St. Patty’s Day.”
